I have had an idea for a new sheep painting floating around in my head for a couple of months now. This is the newly finished painting from that idea. The sides of the gallery wrapped canvas are painted to match, and it is wired to hang, so no framing is necessary!
My painting style leans towards Realism, with a touch of the Abstract at times, although I often use elements of Tonalism and Minimalism in them. I have been inspired by the Tonalists, Hudson River School Artists, Minimalists, Abstract & Realist artists for my art. I work mainly in acrylic paint on stretched canvas, for my Heartland landscapes. I paint with a process of building up many layers, using both wet and dry brush techniques, for my paintings. My art work has been described as having an intriguing peacefulness, in its quiet simplicity.
My original landscape paintings are in private collections throughout the U.S.A. as well as in : Canada, France, Iceland, Portugal, Belgium, England, Ireland, Scotland, Italy, Japan, Brazil, Zimbabwe, Germany and Australia
